“What happened today, I shall never ever forget. The incident has really touched me and my family with the exemplary display of chivalry, dedication, sincerity and security towards the general citizens by the #TamilNaduPolice

After my Onam holidays, I was travelling back to Bangalore. From Kollam, I stopped at the toll gate over Madurai bypass. A polite lady Police Constable of Tamil Nadu Police noticing my Karnataka registered car advised me to park aside and said that I shall be escorted by Police in the wake of recent #Cauvery unrest. For me, it didn’t make sense what she said. Escort a common citizen on the highway by the Police? I parked aside; soon 2 more KA registered cars joined and the motorcade from Madurai started at 10:00am.

I was unsure how long/far this escorting by the Police is going to go on. I believed, once the Madurai bypass limits are crossed, we will be on our own. But No, A relay of at least 7-8 Police Cabs with personnel took over from various check-posts to usher us safely on the highway. From a convoy of 4 vehicles, we were in the total of 16 vehicles by the end of a day. As the sun started setting, I realised we started all this in the morning and the enthusiasm of the Tamil Nadu Police is still persistent only to ensure that we cross the Tamil Nadu State safely and enter Karnataka. Before I could stop by to thank the Policemen for ensuring our safety, the Pilot vehicle took a detour and faded into darkness with no expectation of goodwill or thanks letting us proceed with our journey towards Bangalore.

By 9:00pm we safely entered Bangalore city. A closely monitored and controlled police escort for common citizens for over a distance of 350+ km! Oh goodness me, it should be a joke, but hell no! May God Bless them with more power and bless our country with such zealous people for law and order.”
